45 Minute Free Webcast

Session Description:

Plagiarism has been in the news quite a bit this election cycle, and there have been many scandals involving public figures in the past few decades. These events are startling and shocking, but can also be educational as they can demonstrate to students the importance of always using one's own voice when writing.

Join Matthew Davidson as he shares his ideas for how to use these teachable moments in the classroom to help students take ownership over their own writing.

This webcast will be recorded. Participants of the live session will receive a certificate of participation.
